The Math Circles of Chicago serves children in grades 5 through 12. Our free programs are held at eight different sites. Sessions generally meet once every other week, and the grade levels served vary and are detailed below. Every site is open to children attending any school.

This fall, all MC2 sessions will meet online. We will keep our site names below for organizational purposes. Note that online Haynes-5/6, Brahmagupta-7/8, and Cantor-A1/G sessions will be 75 minutes; Kovalevsky-A2/PC and Euler sessions will be 90 minutes
